Fa­tal ac­ci­dent in Bay Roberts

The Compass - - EDITORIAL -

June 18 was a tragic day in Bay Roberts af­ter a 38-year-old man lost con­trol of the bi­cy­cle he was rid­ing and fell, strik­ing his head. The ac­ci­dent oc­curred just af­ter 4 p.m. at the in­ter­sec­tion of Coun­try Road and Saw­dust Road. The man was taken to Car­bon­ear Gen­eral Hosp­tial where he later suc­cumbed to his in­juries. Po­lice say it doesn’t ap­pear that the man was wear­ing an ap­proved hel­met at the time of the ac­ci­dent, and it is not be­lieved that any ve­hi­cles were in­volved in the ac­ci­dent. A post-mortem was sched­uled for Fri­day to de­ter­mine the cause of death.
